Do I Need An Inspection If I Am Building Or Purchasing A New Home?
Absolutely. Contrary to what many people think, brand new homes and homes under construction should be inspected regardless of whether they will be covered with a builder's warranty. Further, the inspections that are completed by local building code officials are focused primarily on a small set of code compliance issues and are not nearly as broad or inclusive. Municipalities are primarily are concerned with health and safety issues and have a limited amount of time for each home. Our inspectors may observe structural, heating, cooling, roofing, exterior, plumbing, and interior defects in new homes that may go unnoticed by both the builder and home buyer until they become a substantial problem. Rinehart Real Estate Insp Svc offers several new construction inspections: plumbing rough below the foundation, foundation pre-pour, framing-electrical-mechanical-plumbing, insulation and final.
